Closing ceremony for master students

Around the end of May/beginning of June each year, we have a joint closing ceremony to celebrate those who have completed, or are about to complete, their studies at the 60- or 120-credit master’s level. The invitation applies whether you studied on site or at a distance. It is a festive ceremony, mixing speeches with entertainment, and with the new graduates being invited onto the stage to be congratulated by the faculty. The ceremony ends with some time to mingle.

There are ceremonies in both Kalmar and Växjö; as a student, you should go to the one at your place of study. The 2023 ceremonies will be on Wednesday, 31 May (Växjö) and Friday, 2 June (Kalmar). You will find more information in the calendar events further down on this page.

Invitations will be sent out in February
Both international and national students are invited to the celebrations; invitations will be sent out by email in February. Invited students are allowed to bring two guests to Växjö and five to the celebration in Kalmar. 

The ceremonies are in English.
